Tonight I’m going to bed early because I’m leaving before dawn tomorrow to drive to Florida’s Gulf Coast to spend 6 days with my son.

It should be a fun week, and a welcome diversion from all the disturbing news in the world lately.   I’m going to try to avoid the news but I will be bringing my laptop with me so I’ll probably check that at night at the hotel.

I’ll be at a hotel this time because my daughter is also coming (she’s leaving later, so we aren’t riding together) with her boyfriend and my son doesn’t have enough room for all 3 of us.

I’ll definitely post pictures and try to write something every day, same as I did during my trip last August.

I’m looking forward to the 10 1/2 hour road trip nearly as much as the trip itself!  I love driving on the highway very early in the morning, before dawn, feeling like I’m the only person on the road and maybe in the world!

I wrote about the joys of early morning road trips in this post.

    I envy you. I have always wanted to go to Florida but I never got around to it. You know that book, “The Generation of Sociopaths,” which is advertised on this page? I’m reading and reviewing it on my blog. Very disturbing stuff. This asshole actually wrote, “A long and pleasant retirement is both a historical curiosity and a financial improbability. Until relatively recently, only the rich could retire. Everyone else simply worked until the arrival of disabling infirmity and then waited for the gruesome end: That was it.” How lovely! I could scarcely believe they would admit it. And they are pitting the old against the young. Despicable.

      That book is being advertised on my page? I don’t even know what’s being advertised on my page, since they are different for everyone, based on your location, interests, etc. I don’t pick the ads. I’ll read your review. Is it on My Soapbox?

    Sounds awesome, Otter! I love the open road… will you be listening to some Tommy tunes on the drive?
